Banded Brewing Co. is permanently closing its Portland tasting room Saturday, according to a Instagram post by the Biddeford-based brewery.

“We’ve made this decision with Banded’s sustainability and growth at the forefront. We believe that closing our Portland space will allow our team to better use our resources to support our home taproom and kitchen in Biddeford, and our production brewing operations,” the post said in part.

The brewery, which opened in 2013, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in May. Owners couldn’t immediately be reached for an interview about the bankruptcy filing or the closing of the Portland tasting room, which opened on Hanover Street in Portland’s West Bayside in 2020.
